Can anyone identify these hydrangeas. I bought 2 for £5 each but they have no labels.

Making a meadow

Yes I was thinking a wild flower meadow. Oxeye daisies, ragged robin, cornflowers poppies etc. There's 1 old apple tree and 2 apples,1 pear, 1cherry and a plum planted year before last. In think they were 2 years old when planted😊

I attempted to make the orchard area into a meadow but all i got was 1 daisy and a cornflower. The grass is too strong. Would it be ok to use weed killer on the grass and then sow meadow mixes in the autumn and spring?

Is it too late?

Thanks everyone. The pigeons seem to have self seeded everywhere... correction helped themselves to seed everywhere and the lurchers just course though the orchard like loons.

I think ill try them all in seed trays then plant out when a bit more viable. I've also got a meadow mix, ragged robin and harebell seeds so ill give them all ago in the autumn, maybe sown into a raised bed and covered with netting.

Thanks, I thought that would probably be the case. I did sow a load in the spring but absolutely nothing came of it. I think it was a combination of lurchers and pigeons
